Simbu, Nayanthara, Andrea and Soori form the elite cast of Ithu Namma Aalu which has been pending release for a long time. With Simbu's bday, the makers have decided to launch the audio of the movie today.
A simple and a breezy song from the TR family; simbu croons to a tune that rocks between classic folk and lazy bred guitar sections. The orchestration has all the ingredients of a Romeo in dire love sign, going between the interludes Kural kicks off a racy folkish beat for a slow vocal a complete variation of sorts.
Kanne Un Kadhal:
Kural goes the Yuvan way, for the song itself has heavy Yuvan signature through its vibe, what better is that the musician itself has crooned it for Kural. A simple love song, traverses between slow violin to a semi party mode dreams on with heavy romantic lyrics and a background rich in slow symphony. The song might not impress thoroughly on the first listen, but a couple of times and it gets you hooked.
King Kong is an out and out peppy song which has Kural and Shruti Hassan leading the way with rapper Blaaze providing the rap relief. Kural mixes the lead vocals electronically through the number to give an urban touch, somehow it does the trick for this freakish romantic number which has Madan Karky's usual funky lyrics that blend well within. It's good to listen Shruti Hassan whenever the actress slash singer takes up the microphone and with Blaaze aiding them in the rap portions, the song is a good start.
Full on folkish number and not surprisingly Kural has chosen TR Silambaran to croon this song aided by the talented Suchitra and yet again Blaaze supporting in a pivotal way. With folk as the basement, Kural yet again experiments with the electronic fusion, though the tunes are quite a reminder of various item songs in Kwood, like Kalasala etc, it should still serve the masses with apt visuals.
Oru Thalai Raagam:
The song does start off quite ordinarily, but as it starts the verses of "Oru Thalai Raagam" it does tend to catch your attention. A tad slow song for its situation perhaps, the song dwells on simple orchestration with faint table and more on the lead vocalist. The song has its strike now and then, but looking at a whole would just fare off as just another soup song.
Verdict : Romance is the word, through the album
Rating : 2.75/5
